September 6, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

September 6, 2017

The cold front is gone, so is the rain and some of the clouds. That will lead to a string of dry weather through the weekend. That said, Irma is a big deal and will have our attention in the coming week or so. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

Temperatures are cooler today, with areas socked in under clouds not even close to 60 this afternoon in the mountains. A break in the clouds hit the Tri-Cities early this afternoon, so that’s warmed us up to around the 70 degree mark. That’s going to be the start of a long dry trend in the next four days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy and cooler. Low 49.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 70.
  • Thursday night-Fair skies. Low 49.
  • Friday-Sunny. High 75.
  • Saturday-Sunny. High 76.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 77.

That’s about as simple as it gets. With high pressure passing to the north of us, we have nothing to worry about weather wise through the weekend.

Meanwhile, there are three systems working in the tropics right now, and of course the focus is Hurricane Irma. It’s still a devastating Category 5 storm, battering the islands near (and including) Puerto Rico now.

The track is changing, and it appears a Matthew-type approach to the east coast of Florida, but this time it might slam into South Carolina and Georgia on Monday. If it doesn’t go fully over land, that would cause problems for lots of people…including maybe us by the time we get to next Tuesday. If it does get here, we’ll see lots of rain and wind, with flooding possible. I’ll have more on that the closer we get to it.

That said, Hurricane Jose is following behind Irma, but far enough behind to where its curve to the north should happen before the Leeward Islands and stay offshore. We can only hope that’s the case! Fish storms are good things, especially when we’re dealing with two hurricanes in this country in the span of a month.

Tropical system number three is Tropical Storm Katia, and it’s near Mexico now in the Bay of Campeche. It’s going to stay there for a while, before eventually going ashore as a hurricane near Veracruz. It won’t be a threat to the United States, it appears.

There’s a lot going on weather wise, and a lot to chew on for us meteorologists. That said, it’s not happening here for the next five days, as things stay  cool and dry. I’ll have another update on that and the hurricanes (we might have 3 by then!) tomorrow afternoon.
